Join OSI for TOS-Con 2022 at the Westin Westminster Hotel in Colorado—just 15 minutes from both Denver and Boulder.

(Also, join us for more awesomeness after the conference in Ouray, CO—the inspiration for “Galt’s Gulch” in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. The OSI team will be there from June 27 to July 5 (with a special celebration on July 4), in part for a company retreat, and in part to vacation with you in one of the most sublime places in the world. Details about this option will be announced soon. Sign up below for updates.)

Sharpen your mind.
Fuel your soul.
Excel in life.
Fight for liberty.

If these are your goals, this conference is for you.

Freedom and flourishing are not givens. They are consequences of certain ideas that were developed over thousands of years and are still being refined today.

TOS-Con is for people who want to understand and act on these ideas, to thrive in their ventures and relationships, and to support liberty on solid ground.

Join us June 22–25 for an intense, challenging, and life-enriching examination of the principles and practices on which freedom and flourishing depend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is TOS-Con for?

TOS-Con is for people who wants to live free and flourish. The theme of the conference—the thread connecting all of the lectures—is that freedom and flourishing are consequences of certain ideas that were developed over thousands of years and are still being refined today. The conference will help you to better understand and act on these ideas, to thrive in your ventures and relationships, and to support liberty on solid ground. If those are your goals, this conference is for you.

How can I meet other attendees before TOS-Con?

A great way to meet other attendees is to join TOS-Con 2022 on Facebook. Simply click “Join,” say hi, and enjoy a warm welcome. You can meet other attendees, find roommates, ask questions, post suggestions, and discover fun things to do in the Denver/Boulder area.

Where should I stay?

The conference will be held at the Westin Westminster Hotel, where TOS-Con’s group rates on guest rooms start at $149 per night. We recommend staying at The Westin, as that’s where all the action will be. The number of discounted rooms is limited, so book your room early. TOS-Con’s discounted rates apply for three days before and after the conference as well (based on availability), so if you’d like to arrive early or stay in the area for a few additional days, you can do so on the cheap.

Can I share a hotel room and split the cost?

Absolutely! Attendees are welcome to share rooms and split costs. If you’d like to find a roommate, we recommend posting a note on TOS-Con 2022’s Facebook page, where others will be looking for roomates as well.

How do I get to the hotel?

The hotel is approximately 30 miles from Denver International Airport. Both Uber and Lyft provide transportation in the area.

You can also purchase a $9 round trip ticket on the RTD (Denver’s light rail system) from the airport to Westminster. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service within 5 miles of the hotel, including transportation to/from the closest RTD train station.

If you’d like to share a ride with other conference attendees, post a note on TOS-Con 2022’s Facebook page, where others will be looking for shared rides, too.

The hotel’s address is 10600 Westminster Blvd, Westminster, CO 80020.

What are the parking options?

The Westin Westminster offers complimentary self-parking on-site. Nightly valet parking is $15 per night.

What's the dress code at TOS-Con?

Dress comfortably! We recommend casual attire for the opening banquet and daily lectures, and cocktail attire for the closing banquet and dance.

What are the dining options?

Tickets for the opening and closing banquets (Wednesday and Saturday nights) can be purchased through TOS-Con’s registration page. There is a bar, a restaurant, and a Starbucks in the hotel, as well as several great places to eat within walking distance.

Is there a charge for Internet access at the conference hotel?

Internet access for conference attendees is free throughout the hotel.

Will TOS-Con lectures be livestreamed?

We do not plan to livestream the conference.

What is TOS-Con's recording policy?

Presentations at TOS-Con will be professionally recorded and made available at a later date to attendees. No other audio or video recording of the lectures or performances is permitted. You are welcome to take photographs, but please refrain from using a flash during lectures and performances.

When is the registration deadline?

Registration will remain open until the conference sells out. We encourage you to register and book your hotel room early, as space is limited.

What is the cancellation policy?

If for any reason TOS-Con 2022 is canceled—or if for any reason you personally are unable to attend—TOS-Con will refund your registration fees, including banquet tickets, in full through June 22, the day the conference begins.

In the event that the conference is cancelled, refunds will be issued automatically. In the event that you personally cannot attend, you need only email us at team@objectivestandard.org with the subject line “Cancel TOS-Con Registration,” and we will refund your registration fees in full. It’s that simple.

For Active-Mind Scholarship recipients, please understand that we will NOT reimburse you for unused travel tickets. We recommend that you purchase refundable travel tickets and/or appropriate cancellation insurance.

By registering, you agree to TOS-Con’s Terms and Conditions. TOS-Con reserves the right to modify these terms at any time.
